Okay, I deserved that. Didn't edit my typos before posting.
Can someone elaborate on why or what the downside to keeping the OEM are?
Thx

Re: Does you recommend replacing bushings? (s10boy88)

Those are poorly conceived, cheap,very badly engineered crap! They are guaranteed to bind the suspension up badly until they wear out (real soon).
The rear bushing for the front control arms is assured to make proper movement impossible. Poly bushings have no place in a car,street or race. Race cars dont use that junk,they use bearings,and rubber is king for the street.Just because someone sells something doesnt mean it works or is appropriate for us.
Race bearings ride and handle far better and rubber rides much better and lasts.
If you have some miles on your car and want to upgrade I suggest trying new stock rubber bushings. They are cheap and work well.Poly squeaks and wears while it binds up your suspension. A really poor tradeoff.
